Egyptian Prosecutors Accuse 3 Journalists of Terrorist Links

Egyptian prosecutors are accusing three detained Al-Jazeera journalists of belonging to a terrorist group and broadcasting false news to undermine national security.

Police arrested the three in a Cairo hotel December 29. Authorities say the journalists confessed to belonging to the pro-Islamist Muslim Brotherhood, which Egypt calls a terrorist organization.

The three include acclaimed Australian reporter Peter Greste. Al-Jazeera says they are innocent.

The Muslim Brotherhood opposes Egypt's military-backed interim government and backs ousted president Mohamed Morsi.
